Not to long ago I reported that production on Spider-man 4 will be halted due to odds with the studio over the villain. Then, it was later said that the film will be able to meet its deadline and film in March as planned.
Now, word has it that the film is on hold and will be til the middle of this month or longer. Nikke Finke, confirms that the film was halted the whole time, despite the studio claiming otherwise.
Here is a copy of the email, Thanks to /Film:
Damn, its Spider-man 3 all over again. But at least Raimi wants to finish the script first before shooting, unlike “Spider-Man 3”.
If the studio is pushing for The Lizard, then I would have to side with them. We have already setup Dr. Connors enough, and Raimi said he wanted to include a villain to help Parker “mature”. So, why not include that character?
What are your thoughts? And who do you think SHOULD be the villain?
